A cousin to our original Clencher, this beer is hopped throughout with Simcoe and Citra, Clencher is loaded with pine and citrus aromas and the body and alcohol to compliment itís assertive flavors.

From a grumbler thanks to a beer buddy at work. Orange-yellow color with a smallish head. Aroma is grassy hops with some booze. When cold, the first thing you notice is astringency and then pine/citrus hops, booze, a small malt backbone and then a citrus pith aftertaste. Once it warms, it improves and the astringency goes away. The ABV is more apparent in this one than in regular Clencher - perhaps thatís the astringency I picked up? Not bad, but not as good as regular Clencher. Worth a try, though, if youíre a BuckleDown fan. A bit of an update on the second glass - itís definitely got the citrus pithiness working, but if it just had a bit of the grapefruit / orange fruitiness, it would be spectacular.

Poured from the can of a couple of six packs, I had this before a couple months ago (it might have been the previous version) but I got so ripped I never rated it. Nice cloudy orange, taste is tangy, spicy, strong, orangey, gritty, and dry at the end. Nice 8.1 abv Iím happy I just moved 2 miles away from this place, canít wait to visit the tap room.

Draft taster at Brixieís. Amber pour with a bit of haze and a light layer of foam. The smell is strong on grapefruit from the hops. Taste is a regular hoppy IPA, a little less feisty than most hop bombs. Instead, thereís lots more malt support. Easy to drink, since the alcohol is just a touch below the usual DIPA level.

Boutip (5842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Draft: Poured a pale blonde color ale with a light foamy head. Aroma of citrusy and light tropical hops is offset by some cereal malt notes. Taste is a mix of cereal notes with some light citrusy hops with light floral fruity notes. Body is average with good carbonation. Not bad but appears they are not getting as much flavours form Citra as I had expected.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
A pale golden DIPA with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, light biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light mineral notes, OK. In mouth, a crisp biscuit malt citrusy floral hops, tropical fruit, light mineral notes, nice. On tap at brewery.

12 oz can. Citra 3/15/16 stamped on the bottom. Well this was an awesome surprise. To quote my friend Jim after his first sip with a look of amazement on his face, "why the hell is this so good?". Juicy citrus, medium bitterness. Just the right kick of hops but still smooth and palatable. This was a damn good beer.

Awktoberfest (379) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Entirely average. Little aroma. Sweet. Cloying. Would be nice to harness the power of BELT AND SUSPENDERS and make this better. Offer more. Must have better aroma. This just is muted. Needs a smoother hop taste and less yucky musty bitterness. Love belts. Hated painted turtle this is ok. Come on BDOWN. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonkeyBra (4033) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2016
12 oz. can stamped with "Citra" on the bottom. Pours a hazed orange with a small rim around the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine, citrus, and medium booze. Flavor is boozy with citrus hop notes. Full, syrupy body with average carbonation. Finishes boozy.

tmoreau (3624) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2015
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12 oz. serving dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a clear & bright, medium gold color, with a frothy layer of off white head foam that hung around for awhile, then reduced to a ring & film, painting clingy, curtainy lacing on the glass. The aroma was expressive grapefruit, some tropical scent, slight dankness, with a touch of resin, and malt that offered breadiness, with almost a note of toast. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste included decent citrus & resin bitterness, and some malt sweetness that lingered to finish. The heftier malt base seemed to support the body well, but mellowed the Citra influence a bit for me. Alcohol presence was noticeable and appropriate. Smooth, and very tasty, but didnít present an altogether convincing "imperial" feel, especially hop-wise.

Orange pour from draft at Beermiscuous. White head, clear. Bitter but very juicy and fruity taste. Nice tropical and hoppy brew
